Made by Hand, From Our Heart

Strey Designs offers quality handbags manufactured by Minneapolis designer and artist, Sarah Butala. Each bag is created with the intention and purpose to provide a product that has been produced under fair wages and with a minimal carbon footprint. We believe manufacturing in the USA provides jobs, stimulates our local economy, and reduces the exploitation of sweatshop workers overseas. Our hands are busy and our heart is full.

SARAH BUTALA

Owner | Designer

Strey Designer, Sarah Butala is a Minnesotan designer that set out to create art that would be a "vehicle for social change". Sarah wants to make a dent in the unsustainable and heartless overseas manufacturing industry. She is a self-taught leather worker and entrepreneur that is an advocate for women owned businesses and aspires to aid women with micro loans to start their own businesses. While Butala focuses on leatherwork, she has drawn inspiration from her past training in painting, drawing, woodworking, textiles and sculpture. Prior to embarking on her new passion in fashion and leatherwork, she worked as a puppeteer, art teacher, muralist, and set designer. She lives with her husband and daughter and their cuddly pets in Bloomington, Minnesota near the majestic woods along the Minnesota River.
